A loan of $300 helped to pay off a debt and buy shoes for her children.

Candida's story

Candida, 42, did not go to school. She is married, and her husband is a farmer who cultivates staple grains like corn and beans. At times he also works as a bricklayer. They have 5 children. The eldest works as a domestic in the city, the second oldest is in her first year of high school, their third child is in 7th grade, and the others all attend the local elementary school. She lives only with her children and her husband.

Candida receives financial support from her oldest daughter and her husband. She states that with this loan she will pay off a debt of $200, and with the rest she will buy shoes for two of her children. This loan will improve her quality of life. It will help her to pay off debt, and enable her to continue to work with CREDICAMPO; she understands that she is agreeing to a monthly payment plan.

Candida dreams of helping her children to at least finish high school so that they can easily find suitable jobs that will generate reliable income. This loan will help her to fulfill her obligations to her children, enabling her to purchase shoes and other items.
